Lowes Awning Windows
Awning windows are considered a somewhat specialty when it comes to windows, which makes them less popular than windows like single-hung or double-hung. Awning windows use a crank to open and swing open in one motion (much like casement windows). The difference, however, is that awning windows are usually horizontally designed while casement windows are usually vertically designed. Which you choose depends on what room you install the windows and the construction of your home.
Though not as popular, awning windows do have some distinct advantages:
Ventilation In Any Weather
Like casement windows, awning windows are designed to swing open and can give you great ventilation. When they open, however, they only open several inches (instead of swinging all the way out), which means you can open them even when it’s raining outside; the window pane will divert the rain downward (similar to a roof) and keep it from coming into your home, so you can enjoy ventilation even in inclement weather.
Because awning windows are horizontal and open away from the home, they don’t take up any extra room. This makes them great for small areas, such as basements, kitchens, and bathrooms. Their ventilation quality is also what makes them popular for these rooms.
P.J. Fitzpatrick awning windows (like Lowes awning windows) offer a modern, contemporary look and can be paired with other types of windows to create a unique window design. Many homeowners pair awning windows with picture windows or even multiple awning windows for more ventilation and a “beachy” effect.
Even though awning windows only open a few inches, this feature comes in handy when it comes to security. Because the window can’t be opened fully, it’s nearly impossible for a burglar to get inside without breaking the pane.
